Come celebrate #RedWine at Reyes Winery. April 13 is World Malbec Day! Social media has a hashtag for it, #MalbecWorldDay and #Malbec. Join the movement and drink lots of Reyes Winery Malbec. Take a photo of you, your wine and your wine glass!
This wine was originally released in April of 2015. Even though the prominent growing regions around the world are Argentina, Chile and Cahors, it is grown here locally in Leona Valley. It is a limited-edition vintage which has aromas of plum, currant and tobacco. On the palate, you get tantalizing notes of plum, raisins and a smidgeon of pepper. This Bordeaux-style varietal has medium tannins, is velvet in color, and has a silky finish. It pairs well with Asian-Style braised short ribs or roasted pork tenderloin with a plum sauce.
Come taste award-winning #RedWine, and a petite food pairing with each wine! I have chosen special wines to be tasted with our 2013 Malbec for this special tasting event. Each wine will be paired with a petite bite and after you try them together you will think they were meant to be.
Join us in celebrating these amazing award-winning red wines: Our 2013 Sangiovese, 2016 Sangiovese (unreleased), 2011 Quinn’s Zin from the cellar, 2013 Quinn’s Zinn, 2014 Quinn’s Zinn (unreleased), 2012 Petite Syrah, and our 2013 Malbec, 2015 Grenache (member only wine).
The Red Wine Tasting Event will take place at Reyes Winery on Saturday, April 13 at 12 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early to check in. The cost of the event is $15 per person, and includes the tasting glass. Reyes Winery is located at 10262 Sierra Hwy in Santa Clarita, 91390.
